How to Install Aircrack on Windows XP
Be sure to do a computer backup (wireless image by Szymon Apanowicz from

Aircrack is a computer security software suite that has a packet sniffer and wireless internet encryption cracking and analysis software for wireless internet and LAN's. It can work on any computer that has a wireless card which can conduct raw traffic monitoring (most can) and can be run on Windows or Linux with a smaller version able to run on the iPhone. The Aircrack suite is maintained under the guise of computer security tools, but can also be used by hackers to gain unauthorised access to an security enabled wireless network. Even with security, it is always wise to have a computer backup of all your file.
